Ag Plus has been notified by local soybean and corn processors that they will not accept any corn or soybeans that are not approved for export.
This list would include, but not be limited to: Duracade corn, Roundup Ready 2 Extend beans, Enlist corn and beans, Vistive beans and Plenish beans.
Ag Plus wants you to understand that our policy is that we cannot accept any grain that is not approved for export shipment until the local processors or terminals will accept them. We cannot accept any grains that are tainted or contaminated by, produced from, or contain any amount of genetically modified seed. We also cannot accept GMO events that have not received full and final approval for import/use by any domestic or foreign markets; not limited to the United States, China, European Union, or any other export market.
If you are uncertain on a seed product that you intend to plant or have planted, please check with us before planting/shipping grain to any Ag Plus location. If you have already planted a non-approved product, we will do our best to work with you to help market the grain; but you must notify us before any delivery of grain. Failure to notify us before delivery will result in liability to the farmer.
Any seller that delivers unapproved agricultural commodities that include products which are produced from, tainted or contaminated by, or contain any amount of GMO seed or GMO events not approved in all export markets; shall be in breach of the contract with Ag Plus. The seller will then be liable for all direct or consequential damages, including but not limited to, any losses arising from facility closure, extra handling or reduced operating capacity, and all removal and cleaning costs. This liability could also include any damages or issues caused at processing facilities or terminals that Ag Plus may deliver grain to, from our farm customer.
We hope to have these issues resolved by the seed companies before any matters arise. We will notify our customers once the issues have been resolved but this policy will remain in effect until then.
